NFL Draft 2014: Ravens trade with Cleveland for seventh-round pick, take Wake Forest WR Michael Campanaro

Mike Ehrmann

Ravens select Michael Campanaro in the seventh round.

The local kid is coming back home.

A product of River Hill High School, wide receiver Michael Campanaro played college football at Wake Forest. He slid past his projected draft position, which is probably why the Ravens decided to get back in the seventh round. With the 218th pick in the NFL draft, the Ravens took Campanaro.

A slot receiver at Wake Forest, Campanaro showcased the ability to work against zone defenses. He's a shifty receiver, and someone that could work behind Steve Smith for the next couple of seasons before getting the opportunity to earn more reps on offense. He also has ability as a special teams returner, and in the short term can serve as a back up to Jacoby Jones in that role.

Campanaro participated in the Ravens' local prospect workout in April and did enough to impress the organization into taking him.
